Celeb branding

and they are really well made

Truth. I tried one on at Project No 8 a couple weeks ago and was really impressed.

 

The white sku in particular was gorgeous in person. Not sure how it would age though.

I don't see any ventilation in the stutterheims? And I like how the buttons look, but wouldn't a zipper be better at keeping the rain out?

Why would I?  I actually am not a huge fan of the lows, although I own a couple of pairs - they look sometimes a bit "blobby" to me, and the highs are just a bit too techy. But I actually like the much maligned mids.  I find them more interesting, and jeans fall on a cool way on them.  Got these ones:

Fok,

 

I like those, the grey suede even looks purple? I thought GAT's specifically referred to birdshits, my bad. How much they cost?

The trousers are nice ^

The trouser fleck size is bordering on birdshit level.

have you ever worn clothes before? have you ever been in a rainstorm? stop posting stupid shit. you clearly don't know that much about clothing, and that's fine, but your smug dismissal of everything that's outside of your boring aesthetic is really grating, especially considering how obviously ignorant you are.

i actually just saw them for the first time at IF and was also impressed. everything about it looked good. don't know if I'd ever actually buy one because other than shoes I don't have rain-specific clothing (umbrella does the job), but maybe that's just me.

Not gonna lie.  I think that this was actually a pretty good job of subverting Ann Demeulemeester, which I like.  I mean, take away the shades and the knit, and tuck in the shirt, and it's just Ann D.  But they've #mensweared it up in a pretty clever way, without messing with the original intent and fit of the Ann Demeulemeester pieces.  Subverting the "subversive" is always cool to me.  I want to see a MA+ Aviator, worn with some bootcut jeans, but in a way that makes sense.

I got them on sale, and then an extra 25% off coupon.  $260 and change.  So, about 50% of retail (depending on the store)

I'm about to order some organic pink jeans dyed with real shellac, who here has the audacity to wear such a fashion forward piece in public? Not sure even I do but I'm going to try.

Don't get me wrong I'm all for subverting the dominant paradigm tongue.gif just thought it was a silly picture.

This is why I prefer the DH version.

Fuck you all.

 

They are delightfully addictive.

 

On a related note, I've been trying to come up with an "essentials-only" shoe assortment. It's harder than I thought. I used to just have one pair of dress shoes and one pair of sneakers, but now it seems like I need at least six pair of shoes:

 

"Casual"

(L) MMM GATs: go-to sneakers. If I'm only going to have one pair of sneakers, it has got to be these, in the original colors. I have a pair currently, but they're the all-grey ones. Still, probably the most comfortable sneakers I've owned, and they look fantastic once they start to get beat up.

 

(R) Alden chukkas. Looking to pick these up next year at some point, and use them for non-sneaker casual wear. I could see going on vacation for a week or two and just bringing these as long as where I'm going doesn't have rain or snow forecasted.

 

"Dress"

Created with GIMP on a Mac CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

(L) Alfred Sargent Armfield. These are on the wishlist. I have a pair of black captoes but they're from Bexley and not nearly as nice. But the black captoe is the go-to dress shoe for court or any other formal occasion. In a pinch, I could probably get by just with black captoes and GATs if I absolutely had to.

 

(R) Loake Kensington. I have these already and they probably get the most wear out of everything I've got. They don't seem all that exciting but it seems like 85-90% of what I wear to the office calls for a brown dress shoe.

 

"Weather"

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

(L) Loake Adams. Have been wearing these a ton lately, these replaced my old wingtips and are better suited to fill the gap of giving me something to wear both to the office or with jeans on the weekend if the weather isn't great. Which honestly isn't that often in LA, but I still need something for those times that it is the case, or when traveling.

 

(R) Bean boots. Pretty much just for Tahoe, the 2 days a year in LA when it's actually pouring rain, and maybe Portland? My wife and I got matching pairs of these for each other as Christmas presents this year and while they're not going to get a ton of use obviously given we live in LA, I feel like they still will come in handy, they should last a long time, and they're not even all that expensive in the first place.

 

So this leaves out the following that I'm now not sure I really need:

- MMM grey side-zips

- Carmina double monks (LOVE these but not sure how to make them more "essential;" I guess I could have them dyed dark brown and replace the Loake Kensingtons with them, but part of what I love is the caramel color)

- suede loafers (not really SF approved, but I get a ton of wear out of them)

 

I'd realistically like to figure out what 4-6 shoes would be the most "versatile" and then have only those, as part of my ongoing quest to be able to fit my life in a suitcase (or two) if necessary... posting here has probably not helped.
